C-145 donation from FPT

BALTIMORE, Md. — We are pleased to report another milestone in FPT’s efforts to assist the Baltimore Streetcar Museum in restoring and conserving Philadelphia sweeper car C-145.

Matthew E. Nawn has adopted the 1923 Brill as his Eagle Scout project, raising funds for an exterior repainting and refinishing of the car, which has been stored outside. 

Matthew recently presented the museum’s Ed Amhrein with a $1,500 check for the project, as seen here.

We would like to thank all of those who have contributed toward this important effort.

To assist in the work, you can contact Matthew directly at ptcc145@gmail.com. Monetary donations can be sent to FPT, but please use the email provided.
